Tim Tebow and the Jesus Hoopla
Ever hear of Tim Tebow? If you are not a football fan, or a Denver Bronco fan, you probably have not. What is exactly all the mania about in the media regarding this quarterback of the Denver Broncos?
Good question. I think people are simply hungry for something different and Tim Tebow is it. You see, for just about everything successful, Tim gives thanks to Jesus Christ first, he may cite some biblical verses, He does this not quietly but out in the open in front of the secular media world when the Denver Broncos win a football game.
For many of the conservatives and right wingers, they just eat this up. It is so refreshing to see a pro football player thank Jesus for whatever in an "in your face" mode, yet politely done. Tim does not bash you about his Christian beliefs like many will. He knows what he believes and that is it. Those who are left wingers, generally are irritated by this same thing. They think someone should not openly praise Jesus for success or have others cite scriptures during a sport event. Tim will say a brief prayer praising the Lord just like a Christian warrior, yet, he is humble about it all.
Tim Tebow is a great QB, no doubt, the all this hoopla on the Internet or media is just so overkill. The odd thing is that one seldom hears such praise when the Denver Broncos lose or the football fails to hit its target. Can you imagine him saying after losing a game, " I want to thank Jesus for allowing the Broncos to lose this game, it will make us stronger".
